The Air Force 708th Armament Systems Group (ARSG/PK) at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., awarded a $51.9 million contract late Friday (FA8681-09-C-0280,P00002) to the Boeing Co. in St. Louis to integrate the Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) on a B-2 test aircraft. The Air Force has been considering fitting the Massive Ordnance Penetrator to the B-2.

In August the Pentagon asked Congress for permission to move $68 million in the 2010 DOD budget to the Massive Ordnance Penetrator program to enable the first four super bombs to be carried by the B-2.

The Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP), built by Boeing, is so large that the B-2 bomber could carry only one of the weapons. The super bomb has a short wing span and is satellite guided. The B-2 is a radar-evading bomber designed to penetrate sophisticated air defenses and drop explosives on valuable, heavily defended targets.
